Last night I was doing it from 4k-5k. I knew that cannons do better at shorter range but I didn't think they could make that much of a difference.
Google to the rescue again!

Perhaps this will help (with graphs even):

Allowing for a margin of error in the data, then, it appears that beam weapons do maximum damage up to 1km, and then start to drop by around 4% damage per km, down to about 65% damage at 10km.

Once again allowing for a margin of error in the data, it appears that cannon weapons do maximum damage up to 2km then start to drop by around 8% damage per km, down to about 35% damage at 10km.
